Clothing retailer Hobbs has partnered with supply chain transparency provider Segura to further strengthen its commitment to ethical trade.
Segura’s technology will enable Hobbs to ‘modernise’ and improve the quality of its supply chain management, supporting its aim to embed full transparency throughout all tiers in its supply chain.
As part of TFG London, Hobbs is aligned to the company’s sustainability strategy which is based on UN Guiding Principles on business and human rights, ETI Base Code and uses the ETI Human Rights Due Diligence Framework to improve the working conditions for the people in its supply chains.
Segura’s management platform allows the retailer to contain all supplier processes within one system that tracks updates in real-time, enhancing how purchase orders are issued, embedding traceability, corrective action plans, policy requirements, and communications to be streamlined and automated.
“As a purpose-led business that aims to put people and the planet first, it is important to us to continue to protect the human rights of those who help make and sell our products and services,” explains Justin Hampshire, Group Managing Director at TFG Brands – London.
Francesca Mangano, Head of CSR and Sustainability at TFG Brands – London added: “We understand it’s the nature of supply chains to be continuously evolving, but it’s crucial to us to ensure we partner with suppliers who share our values.”
